24 fps and possible issues with TV


Standard Member

I posted a thread regarding what Blu Ray to buy,I was just on my way out to buy the SONY 350,when I was informed that Blu Ray 24fps can cause some problem with certain TV's ?.

I have a PAN 26LXD70.

Any advice please?.

It will just convert the video to 60hz instead of 24hz. It means that on panning shots there might be some judder but some people don't notice it.

Being a 26" TV it might not even accept 1080p anyway and so have to use 720p which will use 60hz automatically.

Thanks all,I don't think I will bother with Blu Ray :( .

I'm put off by the possible problems I might experience with my TV:( .i only bought The TV 12 months ago,it got to last at least 2 more years before I upgrade.

Thank you all for your honest comments:thumbsup:

Maybe you would be best to try and see a demo of a BR player with a non 24Fps screen. As many do not feel it is a massive problem.

I normally use a HD PJ for my movie viewing.. And it's not 24Fps compatable. I've been enjoying both HD-DVD and BR for a while now, without the 'judder' ruining my experience.

IMHO 24Fps compatability is the icing on the cake, not a necessity.

Although if you are using a 26" screen then you may be right, BR may not be for you. Unless you particularly wanted the HD audio or BD-Live.

When it comes to movie image quality I always try and buy the best equipment which I can afford .

Like I said I have the 26LXD70 (superb LCD in my opinion),Pioneer DV-565A and a EXOS SCART.

These 3 components provide a superb image.Cant fault it.But with all the recent publicity regarding Blu Ray I thought maybe Its time to go Hi-Tech ?.

I will follow your advice and see if its possible to view a demo on my mine or another 26" LCD.

But in the meantime I will make do.

Thank you for your help:thumbsup:
